portent.com | Portent Inc | Company Blog | Ian Laurie | June 6, 2013 | You Are Not Stupid

 
Why I Like It:
So, you may have heard the saying that goes along the lines of "smart people do stupid things".  I am fairly smart.  I have a few degrees to my name and someone street smart, yet I, feel like I do stupid stuff everyday.  I agree with the author that stupid is the wrong word for what is really going on.  Experimenting?  Some of the time.  Forgetful?  Some of the time.  For me, I think it is more of a case of lack of cross-referencing.  I am good at compartmentalizing and some time too good.  Often the doh! moment is one an idea or thought jumps the wall and I got aha!  I have to think of a new word for my "stupid" moments.
 
What word do you use?
 

timberry.bplans.com | Tim Berry Business Plans | Planning Startups Stories | May 30, 2013 | Do You Underestimate Time for Tasks You Like?
 
Why I Like It:
The other day was talking to a friend and telling her how I feel like I am behind.  She nicely (kinda) asked why, since I am usually really good at time management.  The reason I was behind was because I'd started working on a fun project.  Now, all of my projects are fun but this one involved tasks I don't get to do it every day, only once every few months.  Like I do with all projects I outline my tasks and milestones before setting out to work.  Unfortunately for projects like this, I always underestimate how much time I actually spend.  With deadlines looming, I am forced to take a realistic view and time box my fun - that's no fun at all!  However, I'd rather time box it then not be able to do it because I am behind on my work.  Back to the grind.  
 

entrepreneur.com | Richard Branson | Run & Grow | May 27, 2013 | Richard Branson on the Secret of Success: Failure
 
Why I Like It:
Growing up there was a fear of failure - admittedly even into adulthood.  Learning to fail was a very had lesson but necessary to step out and be my own boss.  Not only does he shares the importance of failing - and picking yourself up but a reminder that you should enjoy what you do.  Nothing is fun all of the time but if every day you dread the work, it is time to change.
 
What are some of your greatest failures?
